Predictions Are In: Ed Sheeran To Nab Third Billboard 200 #1 With ‘No. 6’

Published: Saturday 13th Jul 2019 by Rashad

Ed Sheeran‘s headed to No.1 with ‘No. 6,’ his star-studded fourth studio album that’s lined with features from some of today’s hottest music stars including Cardi B, Bruno Mars, Eminem, Khalid, Justin Bieber, Travis Scott, and many more.

Lifted to digital outlets on July 12, the set – which serves as the singer-songwriter’s first new body of work since he topped the charts with ‘Divide’ in 2017 – conceptually serves as the follow-up to his 2011 EP, ‘No. 5 Collaborations Project.’

Not only projected to edge out the Beyonce & Donald Glover-led ‘Lion King’ soundtrack for the top spot, ‘No. 6’ also sits at #1 on iTunes charts ahead of the Disney effort (as of time reported) and is set to mark Grammy winner’s third consecutive Billboard 200 chart-topper.  Curious just how many units sales industry analysts predict Sheeran’s latest will move after its first 7 days on the market?

Look inside to see:


Ed Sheeran’s ‘No. 6 Collaborations Project’ 

Predicted First Week Sales (SPS) – 140k-170k

Predicted First Week Sales (Pure) – 60k-80k

Predicted Debut Billboard 200 Placement – #1

If the prediction above rings true the figures will mark Sheeran’s second lowest first week sales to date, following the 42,000 his inaugural studio album – ‘+’ – moved when it debuted in September 2011 [source].

    Yikes!! Music sales down the s*** hole I am curious what kind of numbers Adele will have when she releases.

    • WeezyTheGoat July 14, 2019

      Astronomical numbers, especially in this drought the music industry is in.

  6. ??? July 14, 2019

    lmaooooo and the roach flops again, this time she drags other artists down with her lmfaooooo

  7. AdeleFan July 15, 2019

    It’s funny how y’all point out this is his 2nd lowest 1St week sales even tho this is NOT is actual album. Yet Beyoncé opened at #2 with the joint album with Jay wit 135K but y’all never mentioned that when y’all bring up album sales. I’m sure this Album is going to go platinum which is something bey n jay joint album failed to do

  8. Theman July 15, 2019

    This isn’t a real album. This is a thrown together collaborative album.
